Salt Therapy & Halotherapy

Salt Therapy & Halotherapy

Salin Plus works by dispersing tiny particles (sub 5 micron) of dry salt aerosol into the air, while entrapping dust and other airborne pollutants through a special microcrystalline filter.


The ancient traditional Hindu science of health and medicine, Ayurveda, recommends washing nasal cavities with saline water daily. This practice, called ‘Neti’, has been utilized by Yogis for preparation of extended meditations and Yoga practices to ensure clean and open airways, resulting in easy breathing.

It is easy to dismiss Grandma’s advice to gargle with saline water as an old time cure left behind by science. As Dr. Philip T. Hagen, a MedicaFor more information on Salin Plus Salt Therapy, click here. McCabe, E. (2004). Flood your body with oxygen. Miami Shores, Florida: Energy Publications. Netting, J. (2001, July 14).

l Director from the Mayo Clinic said, gargling with lukewarm saline water eases sore throats and speeds up recovery from flues and colds, and can draw excess fluid from inflamed tissue in the throat, whilst providing pain relief. Dr. Hagen has also stressed that gargling with saline water loosens thick mucous, which can remove irritants like allergens, bacteria and fungi from the throat.

What is Salt Therapy or Halotherapy

Basically, halotherapy or salt therapy as it is also known by is the inhalation of very fine salt particles. More than 40 years of research, conducted around the world, has demonstrated the healing properties of salt therapy as a complementary treatment for a wide range of breathing conditions.

Salt concentration in the human blood is 0.9% by volume. Human tears and sweat are saline as well. This presence of saline inhibits many potentially dangerous infections. For many centuries, salt has been used in food preservation.

According to scientific studies, the amount of salt inhaled during a typical night of using Salin Plus is less than 0.1g of salt versus the daily recommended dose of 3.75g to 5.75g. Moreover, most of the salt inhaled is removed from the lungs by breathing and excreting mucous.

Salt therapy & halotherapy is based on the phenomenon of osmosis. Osmosis is the tendency of a solvent, usually water, to pass through a semi-permeable membrane into a solution where the solute concentration is higher, thus equalizing the concentration of materials on either side of the membrane. Essentially, this means that if a cell is put into a solution in which the solute concentration of minerals is higher than its own, the cell will shrivel up.

Bronchial cilia constantly wave upward in the lining of the lungs and trachea to remove mucous and foreign materials. Their removal protects the lungs from infections and allows easier breathing.

Experiments performed by Dr. Albert P. Krueger and Dr. Richard F. Smith at the University of California have shown how negative ionization affects those sensitive to airborne allergens. The bronchial tubes and trachea, or windpipe, are lined with tiny filaments called cilia. The cilia normally maintain a whip like motion of about 900 beats a minute. Together with mucous, they keep human air passages free of dust and pollen. Krueger and Smith exposed tracheal tissue to negative ions. This resulted in the ciliary motion increasing to 1,200 beats a minute and increased flow of mucous.

Mucous secreted into the lungs protects the lungs by trapping allergens, bacteria and viruses. However, if the mucous is not removed from the lungs it becomes toxic, decreasing lung volume and obstructing airways. As a result, physical action (Halotherapy / Salt Therapy) is sometimes required in order to improve the lung function. “Amazingly, scientists have found that bacteria have enough collective or chemical consciousness to come together and form smart colonies. These smart colonies of bacteria are called ‘biofilms’.” (McCabe, 2004)

In the lungs, bacteria biofilms act as a multi-cellular microorganism, and are anaerobic, which means they cannot live in an Oxygen rich environment. “A prolific variety of environmental niches are formed, and the biofilm affords protection from antibiotics and toxins (poisonous substances; in this case negatively charged ions).” (Netting, 2001)

Dry salt aerosol is negatively charged (like Oxygen), and it can oxidize the biofilm structure, which can lead to biofilm disintegration. Thus, the disintegrated biofilm structure may be removed from the lungs. Additional amounts of water drawn to the lungs through osmosis (caused by salt minerals) dilute the biofilm, further speeding up biofilm and mucous removal. “The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.” – Voltaire

How Does Salin Plus Salt Therapy Work?

Salin Plus works by dispersing tiny particles (sub 5 micron) of dry salt aerosol into the air, while entrapping dust and other airborne pollutants through a special microcrystalline filter.

The device effectively contains a fan and a filter cartridge. Air is drawn into the rear of the device, where air borne pollutants are trapped within the filter cartridge, at the same time, air blows through the filter, which contains crystallised salt particles, these particles are blown into the ambient air.

When inhaled, these salt particles travel through the upper and lower respiratory tract (airway), breaking up mucous and increasing air flow.

The patented award winning technology ensures there is no corrosive effect on the environment it operates in, and the dosage remains at a safe level, even being suitable for those on low salt diets.

As the dosage is so low, the daily recommended use is 6 to 10 hours. For this reason, we suggest using it at night.
